Event Report

Thankyou to everyone for coming to the last of the Countryside Score events for 2016 we hope that you have enjoyed the series and will come back for more in the future. Sorry about the mud on some paths and the brambles on others, The mud was expected but the lovely summer weather we have experienced has done wonders for the undergrowth. I did consider copying one of Dave's reports here but "your word should be your bond" ;) but didnt want to Trump it, and I don't have a professional script writer anyway. It gave us a nice warm feeling to see you all come back safely having enjoyed the event and the pub were happy for the extra midweek business. Apologies for the lack of car parking space, we did attempt to get permission to park in the industrial unit car park but this was declined at the last minute. Enjoy the rest of the summer and try our Night Street League when the dark nights arrive - headtorch and hi-vis essential.
